The OCR World Championships are taking their coverage up a notch, with news that highlights from the 2018 Championships will air on the Channel 4! Not just that, but there are further broadcasts planned on additional networks including British Eurosport, Sky Sports, and more.
Adventurey, LLC, who run the show at OCRWC, have partnered with Dream Team Television to produce programming for the 2018 Obstacle Course Racing World Championships. Dream Team produces programmes on the top British triathlons as well as marathons, ultra-marathons, mass participation events and cycling, so they’re well used to following the action.
Adrian Bijanada, the CEO of Adventurey and leader of the team at ORWC, which brings together racers and enthusiasts from all corners of the globe, is pretty stoked about the whole affair; “Obstacle Course Racing has exploded in popularity over the past several years. We’re excited for our athletes to showcase their skills and introduce OCR to sports fans around the world.”
The 60-minute recap of the event will follow both amateur and professional OCR athletes in the lead up to race day, as well as document the championship event as it unfolds.
“With the OCRWC, we believe we have created a unique and independent platform that celebrates the sport of obstacle course racing,” said Bijanada. “We can’t wait to show the world the exceptional nature of this sport’s community.”
This year’s OCRWC takes place from the 19th to 21st of October in the famed grounds of Nuclear Races in Essex, England. Thousands of the world’s top athletes in the sport of OCR from more than 60 countries will compete for the title of World Champion in 3K, 15K, and Team Relay events. Will you be one of them? There’s still time to qualify!
After it’s television debut on the 27th October on Channel 4, we will do our best to bring you dates of further airings across international channels.
As always, Mudstacle will be there for the blow-by-blow and daily coverage of this massive event.
